Insufficient exercise intensity for clinical benefit? Monitoring and quantification of a community-based Phase III cardiac rehabilitation programme: A United Kingdom perspective (2019)
Journal Article

Monitoring and quantification of a community-based Phase III cardiac rehabilitation programme: A United Kingdom perspective. PloS one, 14(6), https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0217654

Abstract: Background: In recent years, criticism of the percentage range approach for individualised exercise prescription has intensified and we were concerned that sub-optimal exercise dose (especially intensity) may be in part responsible for the...

Pilot study assessing the influence of skin type on the heart rate measurements obtained by photoplethysmography with the Apple Watch (2019)
Journal Article

Photoplethysmographic imaging (PPG) is currently used to measure heart rate (HR) and the accuracy of PPG can be influenced by pigmentation of the skin; however, the effects of skin color-related artifacts on PPG during exercise remain unclear. This s... Read More about Pilot study assessing the influence of skin type on the heart rate measurements obtained by photoplethysmography with the Apple Watch.

Walking cadence required to elicit criterion moderate-intensity physical activity is moderated by fitness status (2019)
Journal Article
Abt, G., Bray, J., Myers, T., & Benson, A. C. (2019). Walking cadence required to elicit criterion moderate-intensity physical activity is moderated by fitness status. Journal of sports sciences, 37(17), 1989-1995. https://doi.org/10.1080/02640414.2019.1612505

The aims of this study were to estimate the walking cadence required to elicit a VO2reserve (VO2R) of 40% and determine if fitness status moderates the relationship between walking cadence and %VO2R. Twenty participants (10 male, mean(s) age 32(10) y... Read More about Walking cadence required to elicit criterion moderate-intensity physical activity is moderated by fitness status.
